I'm trying to find any members of the HERBERGER, or BRAUER (sometimes cited as BREWER), or SCHUTZ, or LYNCH families who may have been living in McHenry, McHenry Co., Illinois around the 1880's.
My GGgrandmother was Carrie (Herberger) Schutz and she used to take trips to visit relatives living in McHenry, IL around that time.I don't know who these relatives were, but I'm trying to find them.
Carrie's maiden name was Herberger so it could have been a member of that family.Her married name was Schutz, so it could have been a member of that family.Carrie's sister, Amanda "Mandy" Herberger, married a John R. Lynch so it could have been a member of that family also.Lastly, Carrie's father married for a second time after the death of Carrie's mother and this second wife's last name was SCHUMACHER so it could have been a member of that family who Carrie went to visit.
Those are the only possibilities I can think of at the moment.If anyone with relatives in any of the above-referenced families were known to have been living in McHenry, Illinois around the 1880's, please contact me so we can share and compare to see if our lines fit.
Thanks and take care, Stephanie Sampson FamilyTresearch@hotmail.com
